COPY PROTECTION (SCMS)
As a digital audio component, this MD recorder conforms
with the Serial Copy Management System (SCMS)
standards. The Serial Copy Management System restricts
copies made by recording digital signals to first-generation
copies only. Therefore, an MD recorded through a digital
input cannot be used as a source for making another
However, subsequent recordings can be made from the
first-generation copy by using the analog input/output
There are three general rules that apply to this unit.
You can record from digital program sources (CDs, DATs
or pre-mastered MDs) onto a DAT tape or recordable MD
via the digital input jack on a DAT or MD recorder. You
cannot, however, record from this recorded DAT tape or
MD to another DAT tape or recordable MD via a digital
You can record a digital signal input from a digital satellite
broadcast onto a DAT tape or recordable MD via the digital
input jack on the DAT or MD recorder. (This unit is
equipped with a sampling rate converter that allows you to
make digital recordings from 32 kHz, 44.1 kHz, or 48 kHz
digital program sources).
If the broadcast does not contain a copyright protection
code, you can then record the contents of this recorded
DAT tape or MD (first-generation) onto another DAT tape or
recordable MD via a digital input jack on the DAT or MD
recorder to create a second generation digital copy (these
copies may also be copied digitally). Note, however, that if
the broadcast contains a copy protection code, second-
generation digital copying will not be possible.
You can record a DAT tape or MD recorded via the DAT or
MD recorder's analog input jack onto another DAT tape or
MD via the DAT or MD recorder's digital output jack. You
cannot, however, make a second-generation DAT tape or
MD copy via the DAT or MD recorder's digital output jack.
NOTES REGARDING THE
Remote control operation range
• There should be no large obstacles between the remote
control and the remote sensor on the main unit.
• Strong light (especially from an inverter type fluorescent lamp)
shining directly on the remote sensor may prevent proper
operation. In such cases, reposition the main unit to avoid
When you notice a decrease in the operating range of the
remote control, replace both batteries with new ones.
• Use only AA, R6, UM-3 batteries for replacement.
• Be sure to insert the batteries with correct polarity (as
illustrated on the battery compartment).
• Remove the batteries if the remote control will not be used for
an extended period of time.
• If batteries leak, dispose of them immediately. Avoid toughing
the leaking material or letting it come into contact with
clothing, etc. Clean the battery compartment thoroughly
before installing new batteries.
